The Family Room

This is our family room.  We started with a black lava rock fireplace with no mantle!  Lava rock is very uneven and impossible to drill a hole in.  So we had to think outside the box a little and this is what we came up with!  The walls were very dark paneling and the floor was carpeted. It took 7 gallons of paint to cover all that paneling..I thought we would never get done!

  1. Oh I hear your pain, Penny! When we first moved into our lake house years ago, everything was dark panelling and gold colored carpet. The carpet was ripped up and replaced with oak hardwood and I spent an unknown number of gallons of white paint covering every single wall and trimwork in that house one summer! But what a difference it made! Love what you did! Looks fabulous! :)
